Sanofi – Why Work For Us?



Sanofi Canada is the Canadian affiliate of Sanofi, one of the world’s leading healthcare companies.

As a leading healthcare partner, we provide medicines in several therapeutic areas, mainly diabetes, oncology and cardiovascular disease.

Our sister company, Sanofi Pasteur, is Canada’s largest vaccines producer. Sanofi companies employ close to 1,900 people across the country and, with investments of $130 million in 2016, are among the country’s top spenders in biopharmaceutical research and development.

Backed by decades of service to Canadian healthcare professionals and patients, we are partnering with our customers in the search for solutions to Canada’s healthcare challenges. These include innovative initiatives to promote the appropriate use of medicines, make healthcare more efficient and cost-effective, and help people better manage their health.

 

At Sanofi, our determination inspires us to work tirelessly to make a difference in people’s lives every day, as we continually strive to create a future where everyone has access to groundbreaking medicines and healthcare.

Working at Sanofi, not only will you be proud to contribute to a company that cares about people, but you will have every opportunity to develop your skills and progress your career across a broad range of business areas and functions. You will play a critical role in defining your career path, and you will be given the appropriate support and resources to deliver results, make a difference, and collaborate with committed colleagues.

Every Sanofi employee has the opportunity to broaden skills and develop expertise that will make a positive impact on the company’s success, and theirs.

We strive to provide employees with the necessary resources and tools they need to grow and develop within our company, empowering each employee to take full advantage of learning opportunities to further their career. Whether it’s on-the-job, through modular eLearning or by participating in local and global development programs, they develop invaluable skills for the future. In addition, we encourage employees to become involved in cross-functional and international project teams as a key component of their learning and development within a matrix organizational environment.

At a global level, our learning centers and functional academies enable our people to develop their expertise and discover how they can work and act differently in their contribution to the company’s sustainable performance. Across the company, we share a common understanding of the competencies and behaviors needed to achieve our goals.

At Sanofi, our rewards are strongly connected to business achievement, team success and individual performance.

Every employee has the opportunity to exchange with their manager, agree to annual performance and development goals, and determine how they can be accomplished. These are typically reviewed at mid-year and at the year-end, when each employee has an assessment discussion to evaluate their performance and development progress. This review takes into account not only their short-term performance, but also their skills and competencies, potential, and commitment in a longer term.

Total compensation encompasses the financial rewards, services and benefits an employee may receive. It recognizes individual performance and internal equity, while taking into account local market positioning. We also ensure equal compensation between women and men in similar roles. Our benefit plans aspire to fairness, solidarity, respect for others and compliance with local regulations and cultures, as well as encouraging social and individual accountability.

At Sanofi, we strive to provide a professional environment that challenges, develops, and fosters new learning and ideas, while encouraging all employees to develop their skills and pursue their career ambitions.

Cross-functional mobility is strongly encouraged across a broad spectrum of different business activities and functions. International mobility opportunities arise when there is a need to transfer skills or knowledge, or as part of a defined talent development plan. Each employee plays a critical role in exploring new opportunities and roles within the company with the support and guidance of their manager.

Supporting career development and mobility across the Group, our global Talent Management process helps us to identify, develop and manage our talents throughout the organization, ensuring that the right people are in the right positions to enable the Group to achieve our business goals.

Through a robust and continuous talent review process, we:

  • Capitalize on the best talent resources
  • Develop our pipeline of future leaders
  • Recognize and mobilize key talents as a shared resource across the Group
  • Foster and drive our performance culture

As a company that respects cultural differences, Sanofi depends on the diversity and talents of its employees to be more innovative, effective and competitive. With an equal focus on recruitment and retention, our global diversity charter serves as a continuous reminder of our pledge to embrace and foster the development of every individual at every level of our organization regardless of gender, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, religion, age or disability.

Sanofi acknowledges and respects that employees live diverse lives. Ensuring our employees maintain a healthy balance between their private and professional lives is an important part of our diversity policy. Whether it’s flexible working hours or providing family support services such as daycare, Sanofi is committed to respecting our employees’ private lives and providing a diversity of resources for them to achieve their goals
